hello ryk786, i/m not a hundred percent certain, but I think the output speed sensor is located at the back of the transmission. With the pan removed, if you look at the valve body and see the EDS valves and connectors, look about 2 inches back toward the end of the case and you should see a connector by itself. There should be a retaining torx bolt and spring holding the sensor in place. After installing the new sensor, do not over-tightend the bolt. The torque should be around 5-6 Nm.

Page 63. It seems as though you have your transmission in Manual Program. Normal driving should use Adaptive program.
Or, your transmission is slipping.

This happened to mine.
I took it back to the place where i bought it and at this time i still had warranty on it, they went and looked through it and found that the battery cables were bad.
Hope this helps

If you checked all the fuses try putting the car in neutral sometimes the shifter gets misadjusted and wont start till the car is completely in park.If not check for a lose wire to the starter.If the car has an after market alarm you will have to turn it off before starting there should be a little buuton under the drivers dash or kick panel.GOOD LUCK

This is a pretty common problem. I would change your valve cover gaskets. They run around ~ 50 bucks. If they are bad it will leak oil into spark plug well and cause a misfire. Very known on the 740.. Also if tune was not anytime not too long ago id change spark plugs while you at it. Then clear the computer and if you still get misfire on 8 try changing the ignition coil which is right about the cylinder with cylinder ignition coil 5. clear the computer. if you get random misfire and misfire cyclinder 5 after then its your ignition coil. parts store runs around 100 bucks

The blower motors on this vehicle lis located underneath the dash. The upper half of the dashboard is removable and entails removing the spedometer cluster. The airbag also needs to be removed to get to some usually white triangular looking nuts that hold the wooden trim above the glovebox. Removal of the front side panels to the left and right of the windsheild is also required. If this helps; the blower motor is located right below the large center vent in the center of the dash.
